Libya's toppled leader Muammar Gaddafi is sheltering on the outskirts of his hometown, Sirte, an aide to the National Transitional Council's military leader said on Monday.
"We have found out that Gaddafi is now several kilometers southwards of Sirte. He is constantly moving," Anis Sharif said.
He also said that the colonel was probably looking for a corridor to escape to Sabha, one of the few Libyan cities controlled by pro-Gaddafi forces.
"Death, suicide or a trial for Gaddafi - is a matter of time. And he's got little time left," Sharif said.
On Saturday the chairman of the rebel council, Mustafa Abdel Jalil gave a one-week ultimatum to Gaddafi loyalists to leave the cities of Sirte, Sabha and Bani Walid. The ultimatum expires on September 10.
Earlier on Monday rebels said that Gaddafi could be in the besieged city of Bani Walid.
